RANKL maintains bone homeostasis through c-Fos-dependent induction of interferon-β
Osteoclasts are cells of monocyte/macrophage origin that erode bone matrix: regulation of their differentiation is central to the understanding of the pathogenesis and treatment of bone diseases suchExpand

Potential anxiolytic and antidepressant-like activities of SNC80, a selective delta-opioid agonist, in behavioral models in rodents.
In the present study, we investigated the antidepressant- and anxiolytic-like effects of (+)-4-[(aR)-a-((2S,5R)-4-allyl-2,5-dimethyl-1-piperazinyl)-3-methoxybenzyl]-N,N-diethylbenzamide (SNC80), aExpand

Variation in and Oxygen-Binding Properties of Daphnia magna Hemoglobin
The oxygen-binding and molecular properties of hemoglobin from Daphnia magna were investigated. There were negative correlation between p 50 value and hemoglobin concentration in hemolymph. The p 50Expand

Evolution of the arginine kinase gene family.
Arginine kinase (AK), catalyzing the reversible transfer of phosphate from MgATP to arginine yielding phosphoarginine and MgADP, is widely distributed throughout the invertebrates and is also presentExpand

Induced Migration of Dental Pulp Stem Cells for in vivo Pulp Regeneration
Dental pulp has intrinsic capacity for self-repair. However, it is not clear whether dental pulp cells can be recruited endogenously for regenerating pulp tissues, including mineralizing into dentin.Expand

Evolution of Vertebrate Indoleamine 2,3-Dioxygenases
Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) and tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (TDO) are tryptophan-degrading enzymes that catalyze the same reaction, the first step in tryptophan catabolism via the kynurenineExpand

Assembly of Smooth Muscle Myosin by the 38k Protein, a Homologue of a Subunit of Pre-mRNA Splicing Factor-2
Smooth muscle myosin in the dephosphorylated state does not form filaments in vitro. However, thick filaments, which are composed of myosin and myosin-binding protein(s), persist in smooth muscleExpand

Origin and properties of cytoplasmic and mitochondrial isoforms of taurocyamine kinase
Taurocyamine kinase (TK) is a member of the highly conserved family of phosphagen kinases that includes creatine kinase (CK) and arginine kinase. TK is found only in certain marine annelids. In thisExpand
